Description

Agriculture is by far the largest consumer of water on the globe, with up to 70 per cent of the water we take from rivers and aquifers going into irrigated agriculture. This report considers, amongst other issues, water use in food production and the links between food security, poverty and water use. The publication is based on 'Water for people - water for life, the UN World Water Development Report' (ISBN 9231038818) jointly published by UNESCO and Berghahn Books (based on the findings of 23 UN agencies concerned with freshwater for the World Water Assessment Programme).
